Please join us for another unforgettable year at the 20th Annual Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival, benefiting the Redwood Empire Food Bank, a foundation close to our hearts as they strive to end hunger in our community.
Our Saturday festival reveals the delicious flavors of more than 150 heritage varieties of tomatoes grown in Kendall-Jackson’s expanded estate culinary gardens. Enjoy the perfect fall day with garden tours, exceptional wine and food pairings, dynamic wine and garden seminars, live music, and the ever popular Chef Challenge, featuring some for our favorite local celebrity chefs, and beyond. Around the rest of the festival, nearly 30 wine country and Bay Area chefs will create tomato-inspired bites, vying for the coveted Critic's Choice award.
On the Friday evening before the festival, come celebrate the 20th anniversary with a stunning Farm to Table dinner set in our estate gardens. Dine al fresco around a shared table hosted by guest celebrity chefs from Bravo Network's Top Chef, and our very own Chef Justin Wangler, Winemaker Randy Ullom and Master Gardener Tucker Taylor. Seating is limited. Dinner is from 4:30pm - 7:30pm.
